Activities I should do to save the Earth
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Get creative with new ways to switch up you commute, or your daily routine. Instead of driving your own car to your destinations, let’s take a walk or use public transportation.
Reuse and Recycle
Minimize any plastic need for your daily activity. Nowadays, there are technology that can recycle any used-plastic to make it reusable. Not only that, you can also change any plastic into other resources. For instance, you can stop using plastic straw and change it into aluminum or bamboo straw.
You can start by turning off any electric components in your house when it is not used.
Switch up your diet
The BBC reported that if the entire world become vegan and eat no red-meat by 2050, food-related emissions would decrease by about 60%. If the world went vegan instead, emission would decrease by 70%.
The earth needs us now. Let’s do something real and save our beloved home planet together. Let the Earth Day inspires everyone to warmly hug out planet and make it a better place for us and our next generations.
